Multi-Polarized Microwave Power Imaging Algorithm for Early Breast Cancer Detection
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 23, 93-107, 2012
Abstract
A new image reconstruction algorithm for early breast cancer detection using ultra-wideband microwave signals is proposed. In this algorithm, the backscattered electric and magnetic fields are measured and combined in a novel way; the direction of power flow with respect to a given focal point is used to localize tumors. Significant improvement in signal-to-mean raito (SMR) and signal-to-clutter ratio (SCR) are achieved when driving signals consist of waves with multiple polarizations. Numerical results demonstrate nearly 5.5 dB improvement of SMR and SCR over the traditional Confocal Microwave Imaging method when a single 8 mm breast tumor is present.
